NEW YORK (AP) -- U.S. health officials are warning Americans not to travel to the three African countries hit by an outbreak of Ebola.<br />
The travel advisory issued Thursday applies to non-essential travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The outbreak in West Africa has killed more than 700 people since March.<br />
Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the risk of the deadly disease coming to the United States remains small.<br />
The agency sent about two dozen staffers to West Africa to help try to control the outbreak there. Officials announced Thursday they will send 50 more in the next month.<br />
The last time the CDC issued such a warning during a disease outbreak was in 2003 because of SARS in Asia.
